Presbyterian will light 'em up

Clinton, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - Presbyterian College are set to play home football games under the lights for the first time in 24 years.

The Big South Conference program announced Thursday that a new lighting system will be installed for the 2014 season at Bailey Memorial Stadium.

The Blue Hose will have kickoffs at 7 p.m. ET against both Bluefield on Sept. 6 and Furman on Sept. 13. Starting times for the remaining four home games have yet to be announced.

"The installation of lights at Bailey Stadium is a tremendous step in the growth of PC athletics," athletic director Brian Reese said. "I am excited what this enables us to do in terms of hosting night games, playoff games and other campus and community events."

Presbyterian last hosted a game at night on Oct. 27, 1990, when the Blue Hose faced Wingate in Old Bailey Stadium.
